Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches


Windows by Henry Holiday - Artist

Henry Holiday (1839-1927). Artist and stained glass designer. Henry George Alexander Holiday entered the Royal Academy Schools at the age of 15 and was soon drawn to the ideas, and the artists, of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. He succeeded Edward Burne-Jones as the chief designer for the stained glass firm James Powell & Sons in 1863 and his style had a long-lasting effect on their production into the 1920s. Some of his windows were made by Lavers and Barraud and Heaton, Butler and Bayne, and after eventually ending his association with Powells, he established his own workshop in 1890. From about 1900 he even made his own glass at the workshop. His later work was made at The Glass House, Fulham. Henry Holiday also worked as a painter, illustrator and sculptor.
